Nearly three hundred people visited the Delta Gamma sorority house Saturday night following the opening home football game vs. Fort Hays State University. For at least five consecutive years, Delta Gamma has hosted a pancake feed to raise money for their philanthropy.
The proceeds go to support the School for the Blind, other causes for people with visual impairment and funding toward sight saving research. Two hundred fifty to three hundred tickets were sold for the philanthropy event. Fifty-five of the fifty-nine members of Delta Gamma worked shifts throughout the night from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.; cheerfully welcoming their guests, serving delicious, pink and blue pancakes, crispy bacon, and orange juice.
“There wasn’t enough bacon. However, I love how these events can bring the entire campus, families, and alumni together for a great cause!” said Slater Champlin, junior forensic chemistry major.
“What I enjoyed most was getting the opportunity to see new people. We saw many different people from all over campus and it was fun to see them interacting with each other. I thought it was really special to have them there for such a positive goal,” said Cassandra White, president of Foundation.
Last Saturday’s pancake feed was the first event of Delta Gamma’s Service for Sight Week. They have numerous activities going on through the week. For example, this Thursday, Sept. 19th, you can buy a whipped cream pie for 50 cents and pie a DG. Also, get your game face on for Anchor Slam! Compete in the three on three basketball tournament at the SRWC from 12:30-4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21.
